    Polly used to be a primary school teacher in London and while she was teaching there she used to get up very early in the morning to write stories. The first of those stories is now a book called Boy in the Tower.
    She's still writing stories and though she doesn't teach now, she still visit schools ... only now they're all over the country.
    She lives in Bristol with her husband Dan who designs the covers of her books.
